Odaiba Statue of Liberty

The French Statue of Liberty came to Odaiba in Tokyo from April 1998 to May 1999 in commemoration of “The French year in Japan”. The Japanese missed it so much that in 2000 a replica was erected at the same place. Today’s photo comes from 2010.

Today’s photo is from the pre-Skytree era. If you were to take this same photo today you’d see the Tokyo Skytree on the right side.

Today’s photo is of the location from which I took yesterday’s pic. After taking these photos we went in for a really good hamburger.

There are three places in the world where you can find both the Eiffel Tower (or something similar) and the Statue of Liberty (or something similar). Can you name them?

The first one is easy–Paris. There you can find the original Eiffel Tower and one of the original Statue of Liberties.

The second place is today’s photo. In Tokyo you can find Tokyo Tower, modelled after the Eiffel Tower, and a recent Statue of Liberty–separated by the Rainbow Bridge across Tokyo Bay.

The third place features the newest copies–Las Vegas.

In less than five months I’ll be checking out the Statue of Liberty in New York for the first time.
